Beside sindhi embroidery stitches simple satin stitch(dots are filled), running stitch and shadow work (wrong side of shadow work) is used in this pattern.

Sindhi Taka Design-3

embroidery pattern for sindhi taka

Doing Sindhi Embroidery is my favorite hobby, after starting any motif or pattern, I try to complete it as soon as possible in order to see the final results.
Unfortunately we have very few books and limited material on net on sindhi embroidery or kutch work. Some times drawing lines and trying to make a pattern give a outstanding results, while watching TV and trying to make new pattern gave existence to the raw draft of this motif.
This motif can be used on front or back of any top or kurti, cushion cover, sari or dupatta or even in bed sheet by using 7-9 circles in different manner.  This is upto you how you use this.
In order to trace any motif on black or dark shade colored cloth yellow carbon is used. In this pattern I have not used tracing simply drawing circles and filling petals made the design.
Description and Instructions for the pattern are as follows:

In the inner most circle round pattern of sindhi stitch is used. A complete tutorial on this is in my earlier post
round pattern in sindhistitch.
Leaves are filled with satin stitch.


Out lines of the petals are made with anchor's golden color thread.
The outer most border which is made with purple color, for its instructions please refer to my earlier post Sindhi stitch borders.
Usually tracing is not required for border or any motif in any sindhi stitch pattern, but constant practice is required. If you are new to it, you can trace it for  ease. In order to get the trace of entire design, use print button of this post and print the picture in gray scale or black and white, you will get the trace that will be helpful to you.
